Sunburn Happens

Posted Jul 05 2013 6:30am

Treating sunburn

As much as we try to avoid it, sunburn happens from time to time. People often get sun exposure without proper sun protection or, sometimes, without any sun protection at all. The consequences can be serious. Sunburn may vary from light, inconvenient burns to blistering sunburns, known to increase the risk of developing skin cancer (malignant melanoma).

Treating sunburn as quickly as possible is extremely important to prevent further damage. The majority of sunburn relief products contain Aloe Vera, an efficient antibacterial ingredient to treat and heal the skin. Applying sunburn products to the skin should be a gentle process to avoid the skin to come off. Remember, after your skin peels off, your body is without any natural protection and you should avoid sun exposure.

Red and irritated skin can be treated with Aloe Vera products . This healing plant contains aloecetin B, which stimulates the immune system, and it also has compounds such as polysaccharides, mannans, and lecithin. Most products need to be applied to the skin a few times a day for better results but this repetitive process is essential to treat and recover your skin.
